Catalan soprano with an extensive musical background and great versatility, her repertoire ranges from medieval to modern-day music, focusing in particular on the Baroque and Classical periods.

She read Catalan Philology at the University of Girona, and went on to study music theory and piano at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona and CNR Perpignan. She specialised in Historical Singing at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC) in 2009, where she was taught by Martha Almajano. She has been studying under mezzo-soprano Mireia Pintó since then. She was awarded a scholarship by the Victoria de los Ángeles Foundation (2007-2009) and also with “Bach’s grant” by Bach Zum Mitsingen (2014).

Laia has participated in masterclasses with singers who specialise in early music, such as Carlos Mena, Nancy Argenta, Rosa Domínguez and Kurt Widmer. She has also taken part in several European internship programmes: Académie Concert Ambronay, the Géneration Baroque of Le Parlement the Musique, La Nuova Fabbrica dell'Opera Barocca and the Academy for Professional Training, Research and Musical Performance with Jordi Savall.

She was a member of the choir Vozes Al Ayre Español and has recorded two albums with Le Choeur de Chambre de Namur for Ambronay Éditions (2010, 2012), under the direction of Leonardo García Alarcón. With one of these productions, “Michelangelo Falvetti: Il diluvio universale”, she was part of several tours in Europe. Currently, she sings regularly with Barcelona Ars Nova, conducted by Mireia Barrera.

As a soloist, she has sung under the direction of Leonardo García-Aarcón, Lorenzo Coppola, Alfredo Bernardini, Jéan Tubery, Martin Gester, Dani Espasa, Juan de la Rubia, Xavier Puig, Rubén Gimeno, Manel Valdivieso, Josep Vila, Enrique Azurza, Edmon Colomer and Jordi Mora, amongst others, and consequently, has performed all over Spain as well as in the most prestigious early music festivals in Europe, and with several groups and orchestras.

In opera, she has sung Purcell’s “Dido & Aeneas” (Belinda), Pergolesi’s “Serva Padrona” (Serpina) and Haydn’s “La Canterina” (Gasparina). Laia performed as the soloist in Cantània “Ha Passat un àngel” by composer Mariona Vila, and in “Papageno & Cia”, a production by Caixaforum about Mozart. She sang in “Josafat, el musical” (music of Marc Timón), and in the musical and theatrical shows of Cor de Teatre: “Allegro” and “Troia, una veritable odissea!”. She also collaborated in “Tandy”, by Angélica Liddell.

She trained in modern singing (levels I/II Estill Voce Training with Helen Rowson/Paul Farrington and Viv Manning) and in theatrical performance (Escola Superior d'Art Dramàtic Eòlia).

Her interest in vocal pedagogy has led her to teach singing in the Conservatori "Isaac Albéniz" de la Diputació de Girona, and since 2018 she has been the coordinator of its Early Music Department.

In addition to her live performances, Laia has made a number of recordings, in particular: "A German Soul" (Brilliant Classics, 2014) with Ensemble Méridien, the collective album “Victoria de los Ángeles canta a Nin” (2009), “Tomàs Milans Godayol: Música religiosa” (Musièpoca, 2012) and “En un miralh”, with Mos Azimans (2015).
